There are many references in shipping and other records to Captain William Marr after 1836, but I can't find any Tasmanian material on him before then. He was born in Dunbar or North Berwick ,Scotland, around 1813, but it's unclear when he arrived in Tasmania, and what he did before 1836. His death certificate in 1879 (in NSW) said that he had been in the colonies for 50 years, which points to his arriving about 1830.
Has anyone come across any mention of him - or likely relatives - before 1836?
Very grateful for any help.
